Enjoy the bank holiday weekend at the four-day Street Fair which starts in Motherwell Shopping Centre on Friday.

The inaugural event has been organised through a partnership between the shopping centre and promotions company M&D Events.

Running on Brandon Parade South until Monday (May 2) the Street Fair will be open from 10am-9pm with lots to do for all the family.

A number of dance schools will be performing throughout the days on a stage outside Officer’s Club, which will also play host to various character appearances sure to get little ones excited.

By popular demand a brand new market operator brings a wide selection of stalls to compliment the existing shops, based at the top end near McDonald’s.

M&D’s is providing many exciting rides from waltzers and a ghost train to trampolines and a climbing wall which will be located from Primark down to the underpass in the south car park.

Rides cost from just £2, and you can find a number of money off vouchers in the wrap around the Times with more being available throughout the shopping centre.

The toilets opening times are being extended and will also be open on Sunday.

Kelly Caulfield of M&D Events said: “Hopefully the weather will be nice and we’ll get a good weekend, events like this definitely increase footfall and we are already seeing a great deal of interest being generated.”
